New Flying Spur wheels into Dubai

The Middle East luxury automobile market has a new addition from Bentley. The new Flying Spur was unveiled in Dubai, UAE, on Wednesday evening, after its global debut at the Salon International de l’Auto in Geneva earlier this year.
Speaking about the new luxury sedan, Bentley Regional Director of the Middle East, Asia Pacific and UK, Geoff Dowding said: “The Flying Spur has long been a favourite for our customers here in the Middle East, a true icon, which has attracted a loyal following. The latest Flying Spur is the pinnacle of luxury and refinement with exceptional performance that is synonymous with all Bentley models. This will be an extremely popular model in the region.”
Bentley’s styling team has developed an athletic design for the new Flying Spur that combines traditional Bentley styling cues with a sporting stance and contemporary details. Sharp feature lines complements a muscular rear haunch, while LED day-time running lights, dipped headlights and taillights characterise the front and rear profiles.
The car includes touch-screen infotainment, mobile connectivity including Wi-Fi, a rear seat entertainment suite and a new hand-held Touch Screen Remote which allows rear-cabin occupants to control an extensive range of features from the comfort of their seat. An eight-channel, eight-speaker audio system with Balanced Mode Radiators provides high quality sound clarity, said a press statement from the company.
Powering the new Flying Spur is Bentley’s renowned 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 engine, coupled to a ZF eight-speed transmission.
As with the entire Bentley range, the new Flying Spur is built to individual customers’ exacting specifications. A range of seventeen standard exterior paint colours includes Dark Cashmere, a sophisticated and contemporary addition to the Bentley palette. The extended paint range of over 100 colours is joined by Damson, a rich hue inspired by the extremely rare purple diamond, and one that is complemented by an optional matching hide colour.
